Graco® SnugRide®

Click Connect™ 40


Baby #2 on the way - and with Boston over 4 years old, my car seat we used for him is pretty much out of date!

This past week I was invited to take part in a Graco party and learn more about the Graco SnugRide Click Connect and I was soooo excited to take part in it!

What fun, right?  You betcha. A party with a bunch of pregnant & new moms is a night down my alley.

Unfortunately, I was returning from a long day in NYC and got so sick that day that my body just wouldn't allow me to do anything other than go home to bed.

The good news is that by following along on twitter with the hashtag (#GracoSafety) and seeing tweets from friends that were there-I was able to really enjoy the party from my bed! Ahhh. Modern technology moms ROCK! haha

Anyway - I've made a list of the NEW things I've learned.... Ready? See for yourself at Graco Safety Site.

5 Things I Learned About Carseat Safety

*The Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 is the first and only newborn to 2 year infant carseat that actually grows with baby from four pounds to 40 pounds.

*Toddlers are more than 5 TIMES SAFER by riding in rear facing carseats!

*Never use LATCH & belts together...they can counteract!

*When your baby/child is in the car seat SAFELY, there should be an inch between their head and the top of the car seat.

*Put your kid behind the passenger seat everytime?  You're sort of ok.  Best place is the middle..then passenger & driver side last for safety!


I'm so glad that I got to really learn about what Graco has in store with their new SnugRide Click Connect 40 that I gathered from my dear friend and party hostess Erica Voll, founder of Mommys Still Fabulous & Girls Lunch Out!  (LOVE HER by the way.)

The Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 – the first and only newborn to two-year infant car seat that actually grows with your baby from four pounds all the way up to 40 pounds. The car seat is designed for a parent on the go. The infant car seat can be easily removed from the base and used as a carrier when the infant is small, providing portability and convenience so you can easily move your infant in and out of the car without disturbing them.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recently made the recommendation to keep all children in rear-facing car seats until the age of 2. Graco set out to make this product so parents can keep infants rear facing longer while still keeping them comfortable.
